Legal and regulatory impact

Understand your legal and regulatory impact.

As a result of the UK leaving the European Union, business owners and managers need to get up to speed with new regulatory and licensing frameworks and consider how these will affect your activities. There have been changes to the movement of goods, customs processes and delivery of services requiring many businesses to review their contracts, terms and conditions.

We can advise on your supplier and customer contracts, identify vulnerabilities that may impact on the movement of goods  or delivery of services. This will help you identify areas you are able to control, agree steps to mitigate the risk exposure of your business, and consider the impact of any loss of EU funding, consumer protection legislation and competition law. Moving forward, business also need to use Incoterms, internationally recognised standard terms setting out buyer and seller responsibilities for delivering goods in international markets.

We recommend all businesses trading with Great Britain to register with the Trader Support Service.
